The Home Energy PLus (HE+) Furnace Program is a year-round program that provides assistance to eligible low-income households when their primary heating system ("furnace") no longer provides heat, is inoperable, or becomes unsafe. The WHEAP (Energy Assistance) Program verifies applicant eligibility and reserves funds when completing the referral to the Weatherization Assistance Program. The WHEAP Program and the Weatherization Assistance Program then work cooperatively to ensure program goals and requirements are met while providing timely delivery of service.
Must have an annual income at or below 60% of the State Medican Income. The household has to be owner occupied.
To apply for service, please contact the Newcap Oconto office (800-242-7334) for more information on applying.
